Arsenal have dominated the game so far. Donnarumma is keeping Milan in this. Milan’s goal came from a piece of individual brilliance. Arsenal’s penalty was very soft, harsh on Rodriguez. However, Arsenal were due some luck in penalties after some of the most pathetic penalty calls that have gone against the Gunners in the PL this season (Richarlison dive, Mike Dean against WBA and stonewall penalty on Welbeck in that Man United game)

Lukas, you don’t have to worry about the English media singing Arsenal’s praises. Arsenal are possibly media’s most hated team. Man United, Spurs and Citeh are the darlings.

Just in case anyone like me was wondering why Aubameyang cannot play in EL while Mkhitaryan can, the reason is simple. Dortmund were playing CL, but they fell down to EL so Auba cannot play the same competition than Dortmund this season. :oops:

The Gunners were due some luck in penalties.

Richarlison dive in the Watford game
Stonewall penalty on Welbeck when he was tripped in the 90th minute by Man United player
Mike Dean doing his usual “Screw the Gunners” gimmick in that WBA draw

About fūckīng time Arsenal got lucky with a penalty decision!

You need not worry though, the English media will not like the fact that they don’t get to talk shit about Arsenal and Arsene tonight.

AND a Milan player just got booked for the most blatant dive. Well spotted referee!

I just can not understand how Dortmund are playing so badly, Salzburg are completerly running over them. If the Red Bull team had any knowledge how to finish a counter-attack, the scoreline would be very different. They've had 3-4 solid opportunities to put this tie to bed.

This. If not for Bürki and Salzburg's propensity to go utterly braindead every time they get on the break, it'd be 3, 4-0 by now. Dortmund have created NOTHING.
Meanwhile, Salzburg keep getting 3v1, 4v2 breakaways and have made the wrong choice (or bad pass) every single time

Yeah Dortmund are finished, complete disgrace.
Great fans, great atmosphere, solid team and good talents - but where are the results? Like MUTU mentioned in one of his last posts, he is too afraid to look at the UEFA's coefficients for this season, and I would be too.

Well done to the Gunners for finally reaching a European QF! =D>

Arsenal the better team over the two legs and the aggregate scoreline reflects that. Milan got outplayed over 180 minutes. Mustafi was great over the two legs.

If only Arsenal could keep playing like this consistently! :(

My picks for the QF draw:
Atletico Madrid vs RB Leipzig
Arsenal vs Sporting Lisbon
CSKA vs Salzburg
Lazio vs Marseille

I don't want to take anything away from Arsenal's performance but honestly AC Milan simply isn't that good. Arsenal had a huge advantage in player quality and it showed.

If they appoint a good coach, Dortmund should get back to normal performance levels pretty quickly. Tuchel's success in rebuilding the team after Klopp shows the wonders a competent coach can accomplish, and, despite some decisions that have permanently hurt the squad like selling Bartra, I don't think the damage is irreversible yet.

However, if they extend Stoger or hire someone similarly limited, I think it's the end the current iteration of Dortmund. The best players will flee instead of dealing with more mediocrity and worse squad quality will lead to even worse results and maybe even lead to Stoger's relegation battle tactics catching up to the actual situation of the team. In that case, I guess we will have to hope that Schalke, Leverkusen, and Lawn Ball Leipzig(bleh) will succeed in building teams that can permanently challenge, but we all know they won't.

Well, the two (only) forward thinking German clubs remain in Europe. Those that live in the past and cling to an idealistic view are out and were terrible throughout. If these clubs don't expect to win anything and are happy with that, fine, but don't complain and blame Bayern and Leipzig for being successful.
